Apk Parser

This package can extract application package files in APK format used by devices running on Android OS. It can open an APK file and extract the contained manifest file to parse it and retrieve the meta-information it contains like the application name, description, device feature access permission it requires, etc.. The class can also extract the whole files contained in the APK file to a given directory.


PHP 5.3+


  • Install composer
  • Create a composer.json into your project like the following sample:
    "require": {
  • Then from your composer.json folder: php composer.phar install or composer install


Tests are powered by PHPUnit. You have several options.

  • Run phpunit if PHPUnit is installed globally.
  • Install dependencies (requires Composer). Run php composer.phar --dev install or composer --dev install. Then bin/vendor/phpunit to run version installed by Composer. This ensures that you are running a version compatible with the test suite.
